Q

How do I bring my NT servers into my SBS 2000 domain?

I am setting up Small Business Server (SBS) 2000. I have two NT 4.0 servers (primary and backup domain controllers). I am setting up SBS on a new machine. After I set up SBS, how can I bring my two NT 4.0 servers into the SBS/Windows 2000 domain? Will the PDC (primary domain controller) automatically demote itself? The domain name is the same for both the SBS and NT 4.0 servers. Can I bring over users and groups or recreate them on the SBS server?
Microsoft TechNet has lots of documentation on migrating from NT to 2000 and adding a Windows 2000 DC (domain controller) to an existing NT domain.
